Very nice little place in the market. Perfect for a quick bite. Burritos are the BEST, I got a 12" two meat burrito (pork and steak) with all the toppings and chipotle-mayo and it was just as tasty as i could ask for

I love Mexican food. I've seen people drinking on the patio here when the weather is warm. It was raining when we went so we went inside. There's only a handful of tables. Service was good but the food was probably the worst Mexican food I've ever had. I'd avoid calling it bad but just not good, not even okay. Some of the food was too cold, the soup was way too hot, and overall not very tasty. I'd never return. There are a number of better options in the city. Prices were pretty cheap with everything around $8-10.

Okay, this place is tiny and the indoor seating downstairs isn't all that appealing, however, I've gone here numerous times and the burritos are the best I've had in Ottawa. Can't beat the price either! Could be faster service and the waitresses a bit more friendly. All in all, the food is good and you can take out.

I'm a fan of fish tacos (yes not really Mexican food) and this place offers that on the menu. Average nachos. Service is ok although a bit slow.

Tiny restaurant, good atmosphere. Fast and friendly service. Good value for the often overpriced Byward Market area. The chips and guacamole come with a side of Pico salsa, large enough for sharing. The soft tacos are great! Enchiladas, not so much: apparently, cold, unmelted cheese inside is the way they are supposed to be. Overall, highly recommended but ask questions about your meal before you order to avoid surprises.
